Howard School of Business Achieves Top Rankings

WASHINGTON (December 12, 2012) – The Princeton Review and Bloomberg BusinessWeek magazine have recently announced top rankings for the Howard University School of Business.

For the tenth consecutive year, The Princeton Review ranked the School of Business number one for the “Greatest Opportunity for Minority Students.” Howard University was also listed among the top 10 schools in the category of most competitive students. The rankings appear in the 2013 Edition: The Best 296 Business Schools.

Bloomberg BusinessWeek ranked the Howard MBA program in the School of Business as 59 out of the 243 programs in the United States for its 2012 list. The magazine’s ranking methodology used surveys of students and employers and other measurements.

The Howard University School of Business, as it is known today, was founded 41 years ago. The School of Business began however as an institution of learning that trained students in the field of business in 1870, when the Board of Trustees of Howard University approved the establishment of a school of Commerce in conjunction with the Freedman's Saving Bank and Trust Company.

In 1970, the present-day School of Business was founded, with Milton Wilson, Ph.D. as dean. Since then, the School of Business has grown into one of the largest among schools and colleges within the University in terms of enrollment, and has firmly established its reputation of excellence in both the academic and business communities.


Founded in 1867, Howard University is a private, research university that is comprised of 13 schools and colleges. Students pursue studies in more than 120 areas leading to undergraduate, graduate and professional degrees. Since 1998, the University has produced two Rhodes Scholars, two Truman Scholars, a Marshall Scholar, 30 Fulbright Scholars and 11 Pickering Fellows. Howard also produces more on campus African-American Ph.D. recipients than any other university in the United States.
